Cameron Carpenter

Biography

As the first organist ever nominated for a Grammy® Award for a solo album, Cameron Carpenter is shattering boundaries in new music.  He is a virtuoso composer-performer whose approach to the organ is virtually unprecedented, and his repertoire—from the complete works of J. S. Bach and Cesar Franck to his hundreds of transcriptions of non-organ works, his original compositions and his collaborations with jazz and pop artists— is perhaps the largest and most diverse of any organist.  As a keyboard prodigy, he performed Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier at age 11 and now holds a Master’s Degree from The Juilliard School. Cameron’s goals are anything but modest: the brash, outspoken and phenomenally talented musician and composer wants the organ recognized as a premier recital instrument on par with violins and pianos. As with most trailblazers,Carpenter has energy and vision equal to his talent and a knack for engaging audiences of all ages that simply underscores his commitment and passion for his work.

Cameron will perform a mixed repertoire of traditional classical music, original compositions and arrangements, and other selected works on the Norton Center’s very own pipe organ as well as on his newly created International Touring Organ.

Biography

With an international reputation as one of the most popular brass ensembles today, Canadian Brass has truly earned the distinction of “the world’s most famous brass group.” Friends Chuck Daellenbach and Gene Watts first came together in 1970 to form a brass quintet — a chamber music setting not entirely new, but never before having garnered the success and storied career Canadian Brass would achieve over the next 40 years. Initially, Gene took on the role of developing new repertoire while Chuck was the moving force in marketing, publishing and managing the group. Three empty chairs were quickly filled and together, the group’s imagination and consummate musicianship elevated the art of the brass quintet to what it is today. Here was not only an opportunity to explore the possibilities of an all-brass chamber group but a challenge to bring the sound and the excitement of brass music to new audiences.

Website: cantussings.org
Biography

All-male vocal ensemble Cantus is known around the world for its trademark warmth, and humor, and its carefully blended performances of music ranging from the Renaissance to today. In this special Valentine’s weekend performance, Cantus explores our greatest and most fragile gift in a special concert entitled The Four Loves. Love has been the inspiration for artistic expression since the dawn of time and is such a complex idea that the Greeks broke it down into four different kinds: romantic, familial, friendly, and unconditional. Including music by Poulenc, Grieg, Beethoven and Bobby McFerrin, The Four Loves examines this most complex of emotions from all sides. The Washington Post hails the group’s sound as having both “exalting finesse” and “expressive power” and refers to their music-making as “spontaneous grace.”
